Tradition of “Dia de Muertos” at the Taber
October 16, 2022 @ 2:00 pm
The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society is pleased to present Tera Bush on Sunday, October 16, 2022, at 2pm. Ms. Bush will be explaining one of the biggest and most-followed rituals of Mexican families, Dia de Muertos. This phrase translates to ‘Day of the Dead’, a celebration to honor departed loved ones. The presentation, one of the Society Programs in the Taber’s Lecture Series, will be held in the Community Room of the Museum. It is free and open to the public.
Ms. Bush explains, “Lately Día de Muertos has become a very trendy celebration in the USA, including the wonderful movie “Coco” which is all about the departed souls and celebrations in Mexico regarding the remembrance of our departed loved ones. It’s a beautiful tradition to honor and thank departed loved ones….. I take great joy sharing the culture that is part of my heritage.”
As the Society Program coincides with the third Sunday of the month, admission to the museum is free. The Third Sunday of each month May through October features free admission. The Lecture Series combines the Sunday afternoon programs with Thursday morning Coffee Hours.
